    Evening Black Shoe.
    How right you are re the Engineers.
    I well remember on my first ship back in 1972 RFA (Royal Fleet Auxiliary) Retainer.
    She was by all standards an old girl by then and although powered if I remember correctly with a Doxford Engine on a single screw if we ran up to full speed (max 15 knots)Just made a nice ripple on the bow,but not enough to water ski off the stern.
    She would throw out enough smoke to cover an entire convoy if we were at war.
    The exhaust soot and detritus that blew out of our funnel was unbelievable.You would think we were burning coal πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Good days,long gone.
    Regards Bill.

    Thinking about this, it's ironic that we put smokers in our models to prove the stacks work. In reality, an engineer takes pride in how clean he can make steam, (with the exception of blowing tubes which is generally done at night with the bridge's permission. Often we'd change course for a few minutes so the blown soot wouldn't get all over our decks or heaven forbid get into the pilot house!)
    There are usually stack mirrors installed on ships so the fire room can see up the inside of the stack how clean their fires are without having to go topside.

    I don't have any video of "Fort Valley" underway, but here's a couple of stills with the smoker operating.
    It's a petrol based unit that is controlled on a rheostat independent of the main motor RPM. (There's a "chapter" dedicated to this in the "Phantom Tug" build blog.)

    Sorry Rick and any others who may have a problem opening.
    I use Apple,but,you should still be able to open the file by tapping the file.
    You should then get in the left hand corner of the screen a download arrow.
    Tap on that and it should then show view or download.
    Download it and it should play......Simples.πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Wondering is there something I'm missing. Have not been able to open a media file. Is because we still use windows 7 on this computer.
